"Revolution in the Lymes: From the New Lights to the Sons of Liberty"By Jim Lampos and Michaelle PearsonHistory Press, 156 pages, $22When you think of the Revolutionary War in southeastern Connecticut, what comes to mind? Probably the smoking ruins of New London and a blood-soaked battlefield in Groton. And possibly the usual suspects: Nathan Hale, Col. Ledyard and you-know-who, the traitor.
John Ruddy crunches the electoral numbers and says Scottish Labour has significant grounds for optimism on the basis of Thursday’s vote. When the SNP won their storming victory in 2015, many people looked at the large majorities they had overturned, and the size of the majorities they now held, and thought it would take a generation to overturn them. Well, the SNP have redefined a generation – on Thursday we saw that its now 2 years in Scotland.
John Ruddy says Labour contests elections in order to make lives better, and in local government winning the power to do that means forging coalition deals with other parties. The purpose of the Labour party is to win power in order to deliver the change that makes the lives of working people better. It should be obvious, but sadly it seems that we need to restate it. It’s right there in Clause 1 of our constitution, and is as true in the council chamber as it is at Holyrood or Westminster.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
